EmployeeWorked at Balfour Beatty Construction Group, Inc. in Dallas, TX at the time of review.

What I like

Good opportunities for college graduates. Legacy construction projects are something to be proud of (Air Force Memorial, Perot Museum, Disney). Unfortunately, the culture has changed with new leadership, and business performance means uncertain futures fo job site and support staff. Unethical business practices, harassment, and discrimination are prevalent in leadership within the parent company.

What I dislike

Upper leadership need to practice what they preach. Focus on employee engagement (without hypocrisy). Ease off on pushing for impossible profit margins. Don’t expect industry-leading profitability from a workforce and culture you refuse to invest in. Peple WERE your greatest asset, but now your most talented, passionate people have either been let go, left, or gone silent. You are driving short-term profits and stock prices up, but not investing in long-term sustainability.

Suggestions for improvement

Ensure that all leaders actually adhere to policies for health and well-being, anti-discrimination and anti-bullying, and code of conduct.

Former EmployeeWorked in Finance at Balfour Beatty Construction, LLC in San Diego, CA until 2016.

What I like

Good benefits and some great people to work with.

What I dislike

Too many 'bosses' . I didn't even know exactly who my direct supervisor was because I had to report to so many different people.

Company Culture

Good. They have great Creed and when it is followed, it works.

Workplace Safety

Very good safety program!

Support from management

Sometimes gets lost with so many different people that you have to report to.

Gender Equality

The construction industry is heavily dominated by men but I think BBC does a good job of trying to balance that.

What I like

Safety culture

What I dislike

Too many chiefs.... way too top heavy. Bloated management. Everyone is a VP.

Suggestions for improvement

Divest the west coast, get a leader, one leader, that people respect and will follow.

Support from management

Teams in the field are very good but management is fractured and selfish. Only concern was making their bonuses.
